When I Thought I Was Good
Wayne Salmi was born in New
York City to hard-working parents just as the Great Depression ended.
After joining the Army, he married and moved to California. Apart from
his time in the service, he had a job from the time he was twelve years
old delivering papers until he retired. Additionally, he owned three
businesses in his “spare” time. In his twenties, he learned to fly, a
major reason for this book, his first attempt at writing. During the
creation of this work, he found that he ended up teaching himself how
to write. Today he lives in southern California with his wife and their
dog. He is a science fiction and military history junkie.
